Funny - he should be barred by Parker from posting period but here’s my take.
He claims to spend a large amount of time visiting wineries? Where? In Spain he admitted he visited 1 or 2 and the rest of his Spanish tastings were done while doing a) gorging on food at El Bulli and b) in Baltimore at his favorite restaurant with his hand picked favorited importers.
In Chile and Argentina we don’t have information that he visited lots of wineries. We do know that he did some 500 wines per day in mass tastings after massive food/wine fests the nights before.
In Australia, we know he floated around on a house boat with his favorite importers…did he visit many wineries there?
In Oregon and WA, he admitted he didn’t know much about the regions but he would visit and learn as much as he could. Then he tasted some wines and bestowed huge points and ridiculous drinking windows on some wines…
He doesn’t taste single blind very often just as he isn’t busy visiting wineries. He even says in the post that he is busy tasting wines of certain importers. In other words, nothing has changed for Jay “Big Points” Miller
You know, it would just be so fun to see DrBigJ and Dan Posner sitting at the same table in person, debating this etc. Man what I would pay to see an actual human encounter. Separately, it sure smells like farts in here, gotta run.
